The Character Trait of the Month For January is Kindness

The character trait of the month for January is “Kindness”. We have defined kindness as being nice and considerate of others. This month students will participate in community meetings, read-alouds by mystery readers, and social-emotional learning blocks in their classrooms where they will identify what kindness is. We will challenge our students to show what they have learned and demonstrate random acts of kindness throughout the month. Families are invited to participate in and engaging in acts of kindness with their children at home. Through experiencing direct acts of kindness at home and at school, children will learn that it is truly rewarding to show kindness to others without expecting anything in return.

Winter Clothing

Reminder: In order to play outside in the snow, students are required to wear snow gear including coats, hats, gloves, boots, and snow pants. Please label all items with your child's first and last name. If you are in need of any apparel, please reach out to us; we are able to help.

Meet the King Staff!

Allergy Friendly Classrooms

  • We ask that snacks (that are often eaten in the classroom) do not include nuts or nut butters. All classroom spaces at King this year will be allergy friendly rooms. Students are, however, allowed to have nuts and nut butters as part of their lunches in the cafeteria.
  • In the cafeteria each classroom has 2 tables. One is labeled allergy friendly. We ask that any students that have nut or nut butter allergies sit at these tables; we ask that any students who have nut or nut butters as part of their lunch sit at the other tables.
  • Students have been introduced to this in the cafeteria already, and will be reminded by their classroom teachers again.

Tour the school with ROARY!
